US M6A2E1 Heavy tank

The last of my CDG 1/144 3D printed resin vehicles is the US M6A2E1 heavy tank. It is the version that has a huge turret and a 105mm gun. Some pictures of a unit of six of these heavy tanks.

Some comparisons with a Super Perishing. It is always a bit difficult with comparisons as different manufacturers vary on scale even if they are supposed to be the same. Even if the scales don't quite match it is clear that the M6A2E1 is a very tall tank and the turret in particular is huge. You can check out Wikipedia to see how much bigger the turret is on the M6A2E1 than the earlier version M6A1.
